Bulldog Drummond's Secret Police


Published 1939


While preparing to marry his fiancee (for the umpteenth time!), Drummond discovers that there is a treasure buried somewhere in the secret passageways beneath his ancient British estate.

When England's most-noted history professor reveals this to Drummond, he is invited to stay at the manor house. He is murdered before he can figure out the meaning of the ancient cypher, and Drummond & Co. have to discover it AND the murderer.

A VERY interesting story, with secret passageways, ancient torture devices, and all sorts of "death-dealing devices".
John Howard, H. B. Warner, E. E. Clive, Leo G. Carroll and many more.

I too, had never seen Leo G. Carroll as the bad guy, cop killer, etc., but he pulled it off. I would love to have a butler like E.E.Clive (Tenny), but would pass on a friend like Reginald Denny (Algy). I am surprised that the film hasn't been reviewed better.

Subject: Poor file
Terrible interlacing artifacts even on the lower res files.

This fast paced adventure is loaded with action, danger, and silliness. The acting is more than adequate although some characters are way over the top. I don't recall seeing Leo G. Carroll, who I remember from the old 'Topper' TV show, play a villain before. Heather Angel is lovely as Drummond's fiancée.

I downloaded the 400MB file. The video is poor: I watched it full-screen on my 20" iMac and any movement revealed horrendous interlacing. The audio is very noisy at the beginning of the movie, but gets better.
